Hump Day Ramblings

Good morning dear Reader

I hope you're ready for this, because I'm not.  I have no idea how this post is going to turn out.  I have no clue what I'm going to put in this.  And I really don't know if you'll like it or not.  And frankly, my dear, I don't give a d@mn.  Let the carnage begin.

I suppose I could start off by telling you all about my struggle to get my blood sugars under control.  Or I could start off on a rant about people who creep forward at a red light, and are into the intersection whilst the light is still red. Or I could not mention any of this, and go off on something completely different.  It actually seems that I'm going to talk about nothing except what I could talk about.  Now, don't get me wrong...I'm not ruling out the above topics.  Well, actually I am ruling out the rant about people who creep forward at a red light and are into the intersection whilst the light is still red.  That is an entire entry all on it's own.

Oh, I have an idea!!!  How about I ask you for your advice on something.  Last year, when I was blogging about Dianne's battle with cancer, it was suggested to me that I turn it into a book.  Now, this idea appeals to me.  The problem I have is that I don't know what format to use.  I have a couple ideas, but I'm not at the point to divulge them right now.  What I'd like to know is this:  How do you, as my loyal (or not so loyal) readers, see a book based on the blog playing out?  What format would work?  It would be great if you could give me some ideas.  If I use your idea you'll win a prize.

At this point, I guess I will throw in some useful info.  If any of you are wondering about my struggle with diabetes, read on.  If you don't care, don't read.  For the most part, things are going ok.  Between the meds and diet and excercise, my blood sugars are coming down.  Over the past week and a half, we have been aggressively increasing the dosage of Metformin...and this has not been fun.  It has hit me real hard, but as my body gets used to the high concentrations of the drug, the side effects are not as noticeable.  My mmol/L is not where the Dr. wants it yet, but it's getting there.  It fluctuates quite a bit, but we're starting to get a grip on what makes it do that.  I go for a diabetes training course in March, so hopefully that will give us some useful information. what.  Is there anything you'd like to talk about, dear reader?  I know I can make you want to talk about stuff, but I'm trying to be nice and giving you the opportunity to be heard.  No?  Well then, it's still up to me to direct this conversation.

And I direct it to end.......until next time when you'll hear about the drivers who creep forward at red lights and are into the intersection whilst the light is still red.



PS:  I have added an RSS feed to the blog, so you can now follow it that way as well.  Thanks to my brother for the idea.
